Studio Programs are at the core of Marwen’s mission. Courses take place in six state-of-the-art studios where students are challenged to excel through comprehensive, in-depth instruction in a wide range of media including painting, drawing, time-based media, photography, fashion and fiber, design arts, ceramics, printmaking, sculpture, and interdisciplinary. Marwen does not require students to have any prior art-making experience to participate in the after-school and weekend courses that take place weekly during four terms each year.
Marwen proudly exhibits student work created in the Studio Program at the end of each term, as well as special exhibitions highlighting the work of Marwen teaching artists and staff, and alumni as well as nationally and internationally recognized artists. Each show is celebrated with an exhibition opening open to the general public.
